Ship Domain in Open Sea Areas and Restricted Waters: an Analysis of Influence of the Available Maneuvering Area
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: A ship domain is nowadays an important navigational safety assessment criterion. Its shape and size depend on many factors. The available maneuvering area seems to be one of the most important of them. This article examines the influence of the available manoeuvring area on the shape and size of ship domain in the open sea and restricted waters. The research was conducted using a simulation method. Expert navigators participated in simulations using the ECDIS system. The domains of ship passages in open sea area and restricted area have been compared.
